MITRE Corp. Hosts E-Government Conference



The MITRE Corporation, in partnership with the Federal Service-Oriented Architecture Community of Practice, recently hosted the SOA for e-Government Conference: Practical Models Across the Federal Government.

The conference aimed to enable government and associated organizations to achieve the benefits of SOA and related emerging technologies through collaboration, demonstration and community efforts.

“The SOA conferences provide best practices and valuable, practical advice to implement service-based approaches in federal agencies,” said Gabe Galvan, who leads enterprise business transformation in MITRE’s Center for Connected Government.

“Participants from government and the private sector exchange ideas and resources that help them succeed in their programs by adopting these approaches and delivering benefits to their agency’s mission,” he added. “They learn ‘how-tos’ that save time, reduce complexity and risk, and ultimately, save money.”

The event drew more than 250 practitioners from industry and government to discuss examples of how government is effectively adopting SOA technologies to enhance flexibility, share data and operational capabilities and reduce costs.
